Police search for man who allegedly robbed Camp Verde gas station at knifepoint; reward offered
The Camp Verde Marshal’s Office continues its search for a suspect, who allegedly robbed a gas station using a knife last week, according to a news release Wednesday.
On Friday, July 16, at 3:50 p.m., deputies for the marshal’s office were alerted to a report of an armed robbery taking place at a gas station on the 1600 block of State Route 260 just off Interstate 17.
“Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the on-duty clerk, who stated that an unknown white male approached the counter and handed the clerk a black colored bag before brandishing a knife and demanding money,” Camp Verde Marshal’s Office spokesperson Stephen Butler said in a release.
“After the clerk filled the bag with an undetermined amount of money, the suspect left the store in an eastern direction,” Butler added in the statement.
The unknown male is described to be 30 to 40 years of age and was wearing a dark blue hoodie with a black-colored face mask, blue jeans and white shoes during the robbery.
